Summary: After working for about 10-15 minutes to get a game profile on portx360 (a software tool used to allow a controller to be used with a mouse/keyboard game), I started playing this game. I thought it was working, and I was having fun until I got tired... time for bed... I tried to save. Turns out the game hadn't finished downloading xbox live updates, profiles and who knows what other crap. No save for my first hour of play. THANKS MS! /slap.
Summary: If you want to play this game, you have to have at least an hour to kill for the set-up. First you need an Amazon account (OK, if you are here, you probably already have that), a steam account, and two separate Microsoft accounts (Games for Windows, and some other account I don't remember the name of). This involves all the set-up, email verification, Captcha, etc., downloading, installing, accepting of terms and conditions, updating, verifying the updating, etc. etc.
Summary: Price was right,so I took a chance.Story line has been ok so far.Have not finished it.Games for Windows have been a problem for me.Game is activated on Steam is one of the reasons why I purchased this.
Summary: Like MANY people online, Windows Live creates a major headache with this game (am on my second install). Steam will validate is one way, and then Windows Live will update it so it won't run. You must set up an offline Windows Live account to be headache free. Otherwise, visually beautiful game.
BioShock 2 - Derivative and uninspired, but still fun.

Summary: The original BioShock was a breath of fresh air for me when I played it about three years ago. The combination of an unorthodox presentation, a unique setting, and non-derivative gameplay mechanics made it, in my mind, one of the best games of all time. Certainly, it had some flaws, but was, and still is, an instant classic. Now, almost three years after the original, Take Two has decided to create a sequel out of the game, after seeing how financially successful it was.
